Concierge.com's insider take:
Susur Lee easily ranks as Toronto's biggest celebrity chef, and some locals grumble that he has been distracted by his growing name and stateside ventures. But Lee, the chef's buzzing culinary landmark on King West, is good enough to quiet any criticism. The perennially crammed dining room, brightened by a whimsical screen printed with roosting canaries, is all informal good cheer. Yet the casual vibe doesn't disguise some very serious food, from a signature Singaporean slaw to a caramelized black cod. The newest stand-out dish: a fresh ground green-curry chicken that Lee perfected on the Top Chef Masters competition.—Raphael Kadushin
